* Googling the Innocent

Personal Stuff/Random News
A judge in New Zealand has banned publication of two mens' names in connection to a murder case, apparently for fear that the accusation could remain in search engines even if they are found innocent:

He said he was "concerned about someone Googling someone's name and being able to access it later".

He was also "concerned about the viral effect of digital publication".

Judge Harvey ruled in Manukau District Court that it was OK to report the names and publish the images in print tomorrow or on tonight's 6pm television news but not on news websites.
